Campus Election Engagement Project (CEEP) 2020 Fellows Application

ABOUT CEEP

Campus Election Engagement Project (CEEP) is a national nonpartisan project that helps administrators, faculty, staff, and student leaders at America’s colleges and universities engage students in federal, state, and local elections.

CEEP piloted in 2008 and has been an ongoing project since 2012. We work with stakeholders throughout our more than 400 partner campuses to engage students in democracy. We provide personalized coaching, guiding schools on how to use our resources and navigate students through ever-changing barriers to voting. Working with us, schools help their students to register, volunteer in campaigns, educate themselves on candidates and issues, navigate voting laws, and turn out at the polls.

Because individuals who vote when they’re young tend to continue, and because we help schools deepen their electoral engagement each cycle, we generate both immediate and long-term impact.
